'It's always different' - Celtic ace Craig Gordon issues warning to Bayern Munich after loss
By James Black
Celtic keeper Craig Gordon has delivered a stern warning following his side’s Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich – telling the German’s that “it’s always different at home.”
The Scottish champions succumbed to a poor 3-0 defeat at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night, putting a huge dent in their chances of qualifying for the knock-out stages of the Champions League at the start of 2018.
Thomas Muller, Joushua Kimmich and Mats Hummels all scored for the Bavarian giants in a game they dominated with little reply from Celtic.
The two sides meet again in Glasgow in two weeks and first-team ace Gordon has warned the Bundesliga winners they face something different at Celtic Park on Halloween.
“It’s always different at home,” Gordon said, as quoted by STV’s website.

“We’re still up against a top quality team and it will still be difficult, even at home, to take anything from the game.
“But we will analyse this and see what we can do better.
“It’s difficult to stop the quality that they’ve got getting chances.
“That may still be the same but we’ll pose a threat at the other end and make it a good game.”
Celtic will no doubt be hoping to pick up a surprise result against Bayern Munich later this month and anything better than a defeat would surely give them a huge boost in qualifying for the Europa League knock-out rounds after Christmas.
